It must be continuously reiterated that domestic and global imperialism are counterparts. It is what connects Africans in the U.S. directly to struggles against imperialism worldwide. . . .
n order for AfricanBlack people in one part of the Horn to be free, we need the entire region and, frankly, all African peoples to be united. As Pan Africanists, HOA PALS understands that we have a responsibility to each other as AfricanBlack people.

The rallying cry for community control of police must be extended to the entire governmental apparatus. We have a plethora of governments at the city, county, state and the federal level yet they rarely act on the public’s behalf.

Its important to contextualize what’s happening throughout the world today with the challenges facing us from the potential growth of COVID-19. If what we are learning is true, this virus has devastating capacity. Even if you are healthy and strong, you can hold the virus, without knowing it, for up to a fourteen day incubation period.
